 Commissioner's Monthly Message

 December 2018

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving with a day full of family, food, and football. The holiday season brings a much-needed break from our usual routines. I look forward to this time of the year when we can celebrate traditions and make new memories with family and friends. I can’t wait for my three Gators—Matt, David, and Lexi to come home for the holidays. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season. 

Our community holds many fantastic events for everyone to enjoy. Parades, holidays lightings, and festivals—we’ve got it all. One event that my family and I look forward to every year is the Annual Coral Springs Holiday Parade. The holiday season is also a time to give back. Every year, my staff and I host a Pizza Party and Gift Exchange at Family Central. It’s great to see the kids light up when they open their gifts and everyone is getting in the holiday spirit. I encourage you to become involved and give back in your own way, no matter how big or small the act of kindness. 

November saw important elections within our Northwest Broward community. Congratulations to all who ran for elected office. Whether you were elected or not, your commitment to furthering our community and democracy is to be applauded. I look forward to working with all our newly elected officials as we continue to represent all residents. Legislatively, I am continuing to push for statewide implementation of recommendations from the MSD Public Safety Commission. We need to make sure that these critical safety improvements are enacted throughout the entire state of Florida. I continue to work with local, state, and national stakeholders to bring these changes to action. 

I know many of us will be traveling this holiday season. This month, my District 3 Vlog will highlight holiday travel through Broward County’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. FLL has many new amenities that will make your travel experience less stressful and more convenient. Recently, FLL added CLEAR security check-in for travelers. This adds to the options for getting through security in a timely manner. The airport has also added more concessions and shopping, so you can pick out that last minute gift before your flight. Check out the vlog on my social media or website to get the scoop.

Please remember we hold office hours on the third Wednesday of every month. Office hours are from 10 - 11:30AM at Coral Springs City Hall (9500 W. Sample Road) and from 2:30 - 4:00PM at Tamarac City Hall (7525 NW 88TH Avenue). Please call 954-357-7003 to schedule an appointment with a member of my staff. We encourage you to reach out to us! 

I am always available to discuss any questions or concerns. I can be reached at MUdine@Broward.org​ or (954) 357-7003. I encourage everyone to follow me on social media as well @CommissionerMichaelUdine on Facebook and @MichaelUdine on Twitter or Instagram to receive important updates and see what we are up to in the community. 

Happy Holidays!
